What Makes a Wedding “Traditional”?

What makes a wedding traditional can vary by country to country because every culture has their own beliefs and customs. A trend in recent years has been bringing weddings back to their roots and larger Western weddings are becoming popular. So what are some popular traditional wedding items that we still see today?

The Rings

Having originated in Europe, wedding rings are a sign of unity. Originally only worn by the wife, the 20th century saw a change in direction when both men and women began to wear rings symbolizing their marriage. Traditionally, the rings are made of gold or another precious metal and a popular stone is a diamond, but this is not always the case. While most stick to the traditional diamond ring, some couples have begun to use other precious stones such as rubies or emeralds and sometimes include their birth stone. Ultimately, it’s all up to the preference of the couple.

The Cake

At most weddings, a large one to three tiered white cake will be on display, traditionally adorned with small silver balls or realistic flowers made from icing. In Western weddings, the cake is usually served to guests at a reception following a ceremony; in parts of England the cake is served with breakfast the morning after the wedding.


The Vows

A bride and grooms vows to one another is a traditional part to many different cultural weddings. While some couples choose to stick only to what the wedding officiant guides them to (for some weddings it is the “in sickness and in health” vows) and other couples choose to write their own that they read to one another before proceeding with the rest of the ceremony. Regardless of how you do it, vows are one of the most important parts of a traditional wedding.

Bride’s Wedding Attire

An elegant white wedding dress has been popular for centuries, having been started by Queen Victoria in 1840 in the Western world (white had been the choice of color for Japanese brides for years before). Before then, brides wore their best dresses, but veils have been an important part of brides fashion for much longer. Ancient Romans believed that the veil protected the bride from evil spirits and they are found in many different styles today.

The Reception

Though how the reception is performed, the act of gathering for food and drinks after a wedding ceremony has been a wedding tradition for a very long time. The reception usually includes speeches, a bride and grooms first dance and of course, the cutting of an elegantly designed wedding cake.

Planning and Creating Your Wedding Cake

Weddings aren’t complete without the staple centerpiece: the cake. As a focal point, the cake has to stand out in a place of honor and blend in with the occasion’s theme to create a unified look. Bride-to-bes get ecstatic about customizing their choice down to the last detail. Haven’t decided yet? Here are the essentials to creating the cake of your dreams!


Looking at cakes is a different experience with actually tasting it; don’t be deceived by appearances alone. Cake testing is done to ensure that the couple handpicks the flavor that everyone else will love and enjoy eating.

Pastry chefs and cake makers now get a lot of requests for flavor combinations. If you’re feeling experimental, you might want to try different flavors and fillings for every tier. For example, you can go for the basic vanilla chiffon cake with a rich chocolate filling. For freshness, try raspberries and cherries. The red velvet cake with a cream cheese filling has also charmed quite a lot of people the past year.

Experimenting with tiers is a good idea since having one flavor alone is predictable. Try something new and make every layer of your cake a surprise. What’s important is to expose yourself to a wide range of tastes so you can decide on a definite selection afterwards. 


The design aspect of a wedding cake is what makes it a centerpiece that guests look forward to. Like the wedding’s theme, it is also exciting to plan! However, you need to be creative but practical with your budget especially since cakes can be quite expensive. A grandiose confection may be out of your league but you can still customize your design through creativity in the design process.

A quick and simple tip in choosing a design is to do the following:

  • Search for visual inspiration from magazines and blogs
  • Canvass prices to come up with a price range
  • Determine the portions according to the number of guests
  • Find a cake designer who can create the style you envision.

If you want to incorporate your design to your theme, it’s much easier to do so. Rustic weddings can make use of a centerpiece that’s wood-based (think earthy colors and intricate twigs wrapped around the tiers). If you’re hosting a beach wedding, you can draw inspiration from the sea (shell toppers, pebble or pearl ornaments and a simple color combination of white and baby blue).

You probably already have an idea in mind for your dream wedding cake. To put that into actual form, you need a basis. So seek for inspirations, gather photo pegs and be visual! You can also call our recommended caterers to help you choose your wedding cake.
